Do not fail to learn from failuresIt is said that failure is the greatest teacher. Failure teaches us the lessons and brings out our mistakes which would have been concealed otherwise if we had not failed. So failures are not bad but not learning from failures and repeating the same mistakes every time is bad.
It all depends on how we treat and take the failure. There are some people who take the failures very seriously and as a learning experience. They do root cause analysis to find out their mistakes and make a point that they won't repeat the same next time. But there are some people who are not able to accept failures due to their ego. They often blame the circumstances, resources, luck or anything they could think of except their own mistakes for their failures. Though sometimes failures may be due to the factor which is not in our hand but many times it is due to persons own mistakes and loopholes.
It is said that failures are pillars of success. So failures are not necessarily bad but not learning and improving from failures and repeating the same mistakes, again and again, is really bad. Failures give us a greater learning opportunity than success. We should positively accept them and work on them.
They can soon become stepping stones to success.
